19: The Inequality of Climate Change

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Global efforts to set the world on a climate change resilient development pathway require an understanding of the relationships between climate change and development. Which groups are most vulnerable to climate change; what is their adaptive capacity and resilience, and what are the impacts of climate change on societal inequality? Is there evidence of a causal chain between climate change and poverty? What is the role of macroeconomics versus microeconomics in assessing vulnerability to climate change? How can ‘adaptive capacity’ actions help the development of a local community?
